This MEDC Façade Improvement Grant project is in the final stages of preparation for submission to the City of Adrian.   

 

Investigation behind the existing storefront and above the dropped acoustic panel ceiling revealed the original historic cast iron columns with decorative details. The new storefront design focuses on revealing the columns, replacing the inappropriate exposed–aggregate precast panels, and eliminating the plywood signboard. Historic photographs were used to guide the sizing and proportions of the new storefront.
